hello kenpochic,

we just finished our lecture and test on electrolytes. the tip that our instructure gave us on learning the different signs & symptoms was to pick out what was distinct about each one, since some of them shared some of the same signs & symptoms.memorizing is not going to help, we really had to focus in and actually learn them. if you think about how they work in the body you can sort of relate the signs and symptoms.foe example: hypernatremia skin flushed


low-grade fever


i hope this helps.
